Louise Bernard, with Solène Delinger

The sitcom “Maguy” will soon return to Amazon Prime Video. 30 years after its first broadcast, the emblematic show of the 1980s will this time be worn by Marina Foïs and Jonathan Cohen, but also Sébastien Thoen, a former comedian from Canal +. The latter told the “Figaro” that Maguy had now become a rebel smoking CBD…

“She often sees red, with her it moves”: this is what we hear at the start of the credits. Because the character of Maguy is a woman with a strong character, who will make her comeback, 30 years after the first broadcast of the sitcom. Amazon is indeed working on a remake of this series, according to Le Figaro, starring Marina Foïs and Jonathan Cohen. Sébastien Thoen also, a former comedian from Canal +, is in the game.

“Maguy demonstrates and smokes CBD”

In addition to playing in the series, he will participate in the writing and revealed to the Figaro that Maguy was going to change: “Today, Maguy demonstrates in the street against inflation and smokes CBD. Almost, she would sell weapons!”.

For the younger ones who don’t know. Maguy is a sitcom broadcast between 1984 and 1993 on Antenne 2 (the channel was not yet called France 2). It is in fact the first French sitcom, shot in America. A sitcom is the contraction of “situation comedy”, situation comedy, shot in the same place and often in public; whose laughter is recorded. This was the case on the first episodes of Maguy.

No date has yet been formalized for his return.
